php and interbase


My simple problem is that I have to supply interbase support for a php scripts application. I have a FedoraCore 3 linux / Apache (default) and php (default for the system) installed. Howeve the web application that should be deployed is writen to work with interbase. Now I think that have a few things to be done

1)  to instal php-interbase (but I can't find php-interbase*.rpm for fodora3)
2) to compile with parameter --with-interbase
3) I'm not sure if it will run with php-adodb.

The interbase database server is locatet on remote win2000 server to thick I don't have connection still. So I can't test it for now, but I want at least to add the support for php scripts to work with interbase. Is it work only to install adodb or can you send me a link from where to download php-interbase*.rpm

Thnak you in advance.

which version of interbase do you need, version 7 would need to be bought from borland, 6 was open-source, ...

Or, consider firebird, it started with interbase 6 and then developed and bug fixed from there, free, open-source

Well, I don't need the DataBase. I need a module for php with which help to access interbase DB from php scripts. I' have my web server with the web-application installed , but it's writen to work with interbase. The DB will occupy a Win2000 server. I just need the "ability" to access it from the php scripts of the web application.
